  6. You should have no problem next year about this time, for the Amaryllis to bloom. Just leave it in the window and let the leaves soak up the light. In spring when there is no more frost, you can put it outside in semi shade to grow. You can even plant it in the garden, and then bring it back indoors in the fall just before frost. Let the pot dry out and the green leaves will go brown and dry up. Leave it in a dark area untill Christmas and then bring it out into the light then water it normaly and give it a little plant food, about once a month or even once every 6 weeks. In summer give it plant food once every 2 weeks and water as needed.
